Due to the petrol price hike, the average monthly expenditure on the transport board is now ₹460 crore. This has increased the financial burden on ST corporation.

Earlier, the transportation board decided to increase the fare by 30 per cent but considering that it might be problematic for the passengers, the hike was fixed by 18 per cent.
